The Takefuji Classic comes to Las Vegas Country Club with a Sorenstam. Too bad it’s not Annika.

No knock on Charlotta, but any tourney minus the LPGA Tour’s clear No. 1 has a lot of PR work ahead of it. ESPN2 coverage for the 54 hole event that ends Saturday will help and so will Tuesday interviews with defending champ Christie Kerr and Lake Las Vegas touring pro Natalie Gulbis.

Probably, the only betting action will be England’s big-hitting Laura Davies at the blackjack table. Karrie Webb is here and our pick at 8-1 to win. Check Page 6 for more tournament odds and matchups.
